This is the second summer I stayed at The Inn at English Meadows and was just as pleased with my experience this time around. One of my favorite things about staying at this quaint B&B is the tasty homemade breakfast served outside on the patio each morning. I only wish I could take this ritual back with me to Boston!
I think the Goose Rocks Beach + The Tides Beach Club (in Kennebunkport) combo must be done at least once a vacation. This is the perfect long stretch of beach for nice strolls (or relaxing with a good book under an umbrella) and located literally steps away from the hip Tides Beach Club (think Miami meets Maine), which is a great place to grab a late lunch + summery cocktail al fresco.
If you’re looking to spend some time in the town of Kennebunkport then check out f-8 gallery operated by local artist, Brad Maushart. This 200-year-old sea captain’s barn showcases Brad’s impressive photography and his fairly new gestural figure-based ink drawings. Also, you must stop by Daytrip Society and check out their eclectic mix of home décor items, unique gifts and quirky cards.
If you’re looking for a relaxing farm to fork meal in Kennebunk, look no further than Bandaloop. This cozy restaurant only serves the freshest dishes and it’s obvious with each bite.
Another favorite is Earth located at Hidden Pond, sit at the bar and enjoy a classic cocktail or lounge by the fireplace with an appetizer. The service, ambience, and all around deliciousness will not disappoint.
If you’re traveling to Maine anytime soon, feel free to reach out for more recommendations. It has quickly become my favorite New England destination. My next trip to Kennebunk can’t come soon enough!
